An extraordinary opportunity to stay in one of the most famous and influential schools in the world. It’s going to be a very British summer school!



KKCL has over 22 years of experience in providing international students with a unique English language study experience in the UK and abroad. Under the KKCL umbrella, we proudly present two distinct brands: KKCL English and KKCL Juniors, catering to the educational needs of both adults and young learners, aged 7 to 10 and 11 to 17.


KKCL Juniors offer study experiences all year around at our flagship school located in a Grade II listed building in Harrow. In addition to our flagship school, our renowned Summer School programme takes place in one of the most famous and influential schools in the world – Harrow School, with state-of-the-art facilities and safe & secure on-site residential accommodation.


Many schools offer workshops and standard English lessons, but very few can offer the integrated experience that we do, through our unique project-based Go Create! English syllabus, taught by dynamic and inspirational teachers. These one-of-a-kind, dynamic and challenging classes are second to none, allowing our students to use their imagination and language skills to produce creative work in English that is uniquely theirs. Our programmes have been carefully designed to maintain a strong focus on English progression whilst at the same time appealing to young people’s sense of creativity and fun. 


We believe strongly in the value of the teacher, that’s why we select and develop teachers who have more than just qualifications. Our teachers combine a passion for education with skills and interests in a wide range of fields, from drama to art and music.
